    GDRP Wordpress Solution

    Due to repeated bad feedback here, the 250 people I emailed about this, some facebook group chats, and now I'm catching hate on reddit too, this project is canceled. It was honestly canceled a long time ago, but some person trolling me on reddit reminded me. I've not gotten a single person, so far, to say they want this or even think it's a good idea. There was a plan here where I would either develop this into a premium plugin, or train a person to install the solution and sell that as a service to people. I'm going to keep using it for my personal projects but I just shoved all the content I created to explain this into a folder and backed it up. The main thing is, I'm not lawyer and for whatever reason people will not accept that the solution complies with the law. The feedback is pretty much splitting about 80/20. 80% - Doesn't feel there's a need for the Geo IP component 20% - Doesn't think that the Geo IP component complies (This is obviously wrong, so that means you can't buy ads on any ad platform unless your landing page and site complies with the GDRP+EU Cookie Law.)
  2. This isn't a response to you specifically but is a quick tutorial on how to gain Reddit Karma relatively quickly and somewhat consistently. The reason to do this would be to build your karma up, so if somebody looks at your profile, you don't like Reedit newbie. Mike is already beyond that point. Tip: When you have a brand new account, and you have zero karma, you can not post more than once per 10 minutes to a specific subreddit, and once you get the timer, it applies to all subreddits. So the way to work around that is to bounce from subreddit to subreddit. It is really super annoying when you're trying to help somebody, and you can't post because of the stupid timer. So, go to r/all/ and sort by popular (r/all is not a subreddit, it's all of reddit.) Go down the list, what you are looking for is an opportunity to reply to somebody who's comment is heavily up-voted and should currently be at the top of comments. The Reddit comments are known as nested comments, they're not in chronological order, and there's an up-vote system to determine the order of the conversations. So, even though you just left a comment a few seconds ago, your comment will appear under the person you responded to rather than at the bottom of the page. So if you see an opportunity to leave a comment and it will be to one of the top comments, leave a comment, preferably a joke or interesting information. It doesn't have to be long, my best post was the word "HALP" and I got 300+ up-votes (it was a cute puppy that was kind of trapped in a fence, it was really more confused and was doing the puppy dog eyes thing.) Another post was a lion sitting in a wheel barrel, and I said something like "The lion is like, 'This Is Mine Now' " and got 200+ upvotes. Both of these pictures were posted to r/eyebleach . Many of the subreddit names are the opposite of what you would think they are based upon their name. So there's r/PeopleFuckingDying and there's going to be cute pictures, not actually people dying. There might be a post like "Man Viciously Mauled To Death," and it's a gif of kitten playing... Another post I got almost 100 karma from, was a post about 'The Big Lebowski' being shown in theaters again and I quickly Googled memorable quotes and posted one that wasn't already posted and got almost 100 karma (I honestly never saw the movie, but I know it has a following.) I was able to respond to the person who replied to the comment with the most up-votes. So even though I wasn't at the very top, it still worked. But if the comments are fully expanded outwards due to people replying to the top comment or people who replied to them, just move on to the next post in r/all. 80/20 rule definitely applies here, I definitely got 80% of my karma from a tiny handful of posts, and the vast majority of them fell flat, and I got no up-votes, or worse people were down-voting me. Sometimes the down-voting is completely unfair. I got -30 on a few posts responding to a news article (not politics) and what I said was honest and accurate, I guess people didn't want to read what I had to say. Also, if anybody responds to you, up-vote them and try to leave a response to them. Sometimes people will up-vote entire conversations. Also, going beyond 1000 karma here is kind of pointless. It's just an appearance thing, the way karma really works is that it's actually based upon the subreddit you got it from. So if you want to be a "valued contributor" in a specific subreddit, you really just help people or post links to good content in that specific subreddit. Also, if you pay attention and you notice that you are quickly starting to get downvotes on a post, you can delete it, but I wouldn't post in that subreddit again for like a day. It's definitely bad manners to do things like that.
  3. No hacks or buying Karma. 100% whitehat... I was able to beat Mike's karma on reddit in 5 days. I admit, I used r/eyebleach a little bit to do it Just kidding, that was most of it... 😎 Edit: I was really just trying to get 1k karma as fast as I could and it had nothing to do with Mike... 😀
  4. Man, I feel dumb not knowing about this. SEMRush has a built in email outreach tool. It finds emails somehow as well (it's not whois, I checked that.) I did double check some of the emails it found and indeed it seems decent. (Obviously it won't find them all.) It connects via Gmail and apparently you can send up to 500 emails a day (which is the Gmail limit I believe.) You could probably make a bunch of projects and spam a few thousand outreach emails a day like a real big newb... (Effectiveness is all that matters, not the number of emails sent...) The default email template is absolutely horrible and I would never use that but whatever... It's in beta but it's not new. Under projects click the link building tool. Tip: Do not use your main Gmail account. I've heard of a few cases of people getting their Gmail accounts banned for doing outreach. Big Tip: The tool itself is a little bit wonky and I recommend creating a separate project just for the link building tool. The reason behind this is I find myself having to delete the project and I don't want to delete all of the other project settings. I'm assuming most people would create 1 project for each piece of content they want to rank and there's no way to go back and edit your target keywords or competitors... So you end up deleting it when you are done. Me personally, I would be exporting most of the data and build an outreach email list in Excel/GoogleDocs. Even you just use the tool to export the list of prospects and then upload them to hunter.io, it still saves an enormous amount of time, granted you still need their names. I'm back from vacation and I plan to give this a whirl! I'm also glad I'm grandfathered in to a lower monthly rate than it is now...
  5. I might be wrong and this might have been there for awhile now, but if you click the secure site icon in chrome, it pulls up the list of cookies the site uses, and you have the option to individually delete them.
  6. Well those are organic competitors of the biggest online marketing site online. If I picked organic competitors of a dog training website, I would expect the number to be much lower.
  7. /shrug How many sites do you want me to scan? Edit: Scanned 3,000 sites. SEMRush -> Neilpatel.com -> Organic Competitors -> Exported First 3000 ScrapeBox Link Checker looked for the footprint / "URL" (It can be anything excluding an HTML tag.) Google Tag Manager Results: Found 1925. So about 65% of sites that are "marketing aware."

    Social Media Marketing

    Nothing prevents you from doing both, analyzing the results, and focusing on what works. In your other thread you asked about agencies. No I do not have an agency, but they can be expensive, depending on what exactly you want done. There are agencies that work with small websites and agencies that work with fortune 500 companies to create web commercials and multi million dollar a month digital advertising campaigns. Quotes I've gotten before: Quality outreach marketing campaigns for the purpose of earning high quality links: effectively 100-200$ per link. Creating quality content that will earn links: 2,000-3,000$ per page. Quality videos 100-250$ per minute for Youtube/Facebook. Ads from a professional ad creative team 1000$ per ad set and they weren't going to create anything fancy. Hourly rates are typically billed by an agency at around 50$ per hour. Now with that said. Can you hire a social media manager from a foreign country for 5$ an hour? Sure. But they're just going to do basic things like respond to users, like people, make basic text only posts, post in groups, follow people, and what not. If you have a brand with a specific brand identity that targets a specific audience, is very large and valuable, then I would never recommend you hire somebody for 5$ an hour. You need a professional who is going to try to learn about your audience, learn about your brand, and then build a marketing campaign (ideally from their years of experience that was earned while being surrounded by like minded professionals.)

    I know If you run ads on stuff like ad.fly, you get ~ 100k page views an hour. ab is an apache bench-marking tool.

    I have a VPS at liquid web that I stress tested at 10k requests using apache ab and it didn't melt.
  11. I'm so glad I killed my ecommerce business. https://apnews.com/332abb7455cb4b60b2effc0852ff3c89/High-Court:-Online-shoppers-can-be-forced-to-pay-sales-tax
  12. I gather this does not affect me since I do not allow users to upload squat to my sites. But yeah they voted to ban memes in the EU. LOL... It's not law yet. https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/eu-copyright-law/
  13. I have two Adwords accounts, one personal and one for my LLC. I just got an email saying that my personal Adwords accounts has expired and they gave me a $150 coupon if I decide to reactive my account. And yes, you are allowed to have two Adwords accounts if you are incorporated. https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Basics-for-New-Advertisers/Can-one-person-have-2-Adwords-accounts/td-p/202080 Nice!!! Where's my credit card?

    GDRP Wordpress Solution

    PM sent. I'm not really "killing myself." I was doing yard work all day. I found out one of my plugins dropped cookies (SumoMe), so I modded it. It took about 5 minutes. I spent 10x longer than that digging through stock photo sites looking for a funny picture of a cat. Edit: Great I finally found a stock photo I like and it's a Shutterstock exclusive...
